DR. RAYMOND BINFORD
UILFORD college esteems herself fortunate in the possession of Dr.
Raymond Binford as her President. After a period of unsettlement
she now feels that progress is guaranteed and her future secure. We
are confident that the affairs of the college are in competent hands.
We have as president a man who possesses in an unique manner the
necessary qualifications. He was reared as a Friend among Friends,
he was educated at a sister Quaker college, he is an University man, he is a
sound scholar, a capable administrator, an eloquent and forceful speaker, and
above all, he thoroughly understands local conditions. We regard him as one
of ourselves, for in a long period of probation he proved his worth as a mem-
ber of the Faculty. Therefore the class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty,
dedicate this book to him as an expression of our love, honor and confidence.
Raymond Binford, son of Josiah and Margaret Binford. was born near
Carthage, Indiana. In his boyhood the family moved to Kansas, where he
received his early education in a community of Friends. He later attended
Earlham College, and received the degree of B S. in 1901. Then began his
connection with Guilford College. Coming here as Professor of Biology and
Geology he remained intimately associated with the college for the next thir-
teen years. His activities and interests were in no way limited to his lecture
loom and laboratory. He identified himself with all our Social and Literary
interests, and made a place for himself in the Yearly Meeting at large.
As a true student he naturally continued his scientific investigation. In
1906 he received the Degree of S.M. from the University of Chicago and in
1912 the Degree of Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University, where he had held
a Fellowship. He was at the United States Fisheries Laboratory, Beaufort,
N. C, as Scientific Assistant during the summers of 1908-11 : and was Instruct-
or in Invertebrate Zoology at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole,
Mass., during the summers of 1912-17.
Aftei receiving the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy he was called to his
Alma Mater as Professor of Zoology, where he remained four years and until
he was elected as our President.
In 1913 he married Helen Titsworth, a grand-daughter of Naomi Jay. Mrs.
Binford is a woman of letters, being a graduate of Earlham college, and having
been Professor of French and German at the Friends' University, Wichita,
Kansas and at the Maryland College for women
Pa Iff Four
Being descended from a long line of Quaker ancestors, a number of whom
were Ministers of the Gospel, Raymond Binford proved himself worthy of
his inheritance and was recorded a Minister by New Garden Monthly Meet-
ing in 1905.
The scientific exactness of his mind together with his capacity for work
has won for him the honor of wearing a Phi Beta Kappa key. This exactness
however does not make him intolerant of those who do not have this capacity.
His methods of teaching are uniquely his own, but one who follows his cour-
ses cannot help but absorb something from them.
Dr. Binford coming to us, as he did in 1918. at a time when Guilford along
with all other colleges and Universities of the country were undergoing the
stress of war times, at once put his shoulder to the wheel and has not since
taken it away. During the Influenza epidemic of that year he was unceasing
in his solicitude for the health and welfare of all. In the Spring of 1919 he
initiated and personally conducted a campaign to increase the endowment of
the college to the million dollar mark. This goal has not yet been reached,
but his success in this has far exceeded the expectations of the most enthu-
siastic of his supporters. This year he has had added to his cares an import-
ant place in the Interchurch Movement. He entered whole heartedly into
this great work as he does into everything that wins his support. That is one
of his great characteristics. He never does anything by halves.
During the time we have known him as President we have learned to ap-
preciate his strength of character, and are not unmindful of the many per-
sonal sacrifices he is making in seeking to put Guilford College in the front
lank of the educational institutions of the old North State.
HE 1920 Quaker is fi-
nished. And now, O
gentle reader, we hand
it over to you who are
to be its final judges
Will you, turning the
pages with patience,
forget the imperfections and
think of the book only as a
messenger sent to you to bring
back fond memories of college
We do not present it to you
with the idea that it is perfect.
In many ways it has fallen
short of our expectations : but
we have tried, as much as pos-
sible to make it a mirror and re-
view of the student life at Guil-
ford curing the past year. The
task has not been easy. But if
through our effort the heart of
some one beats with a little
keener devotion and loyalty to
his Alma Mater, our work will
not have been in vain.

MRS, MARY M. HOBBS
We the class of 1920 take this opportunity to express our appreciation for
the interest that Mrs, Hobbs has always manifested in college activities. It
was largely through her influence that New Garden Hall was built. She has
always been an untiring worker in behalf of better Education for girls, and
although during the past year ill health has kept her from active work along
this line, her interest in the cause has never decreased.
When the shades of evening gather
Guilford students hie
To the soft green swarded campus.
For a time our books laid by;
And the parting rifts of sunlight.
As they linger soft and long.
Shed a hallow'd gleam of gladness
On our merriment and song.
Now the songs of dear old Guilford
Peal across the downy green.
From Archdale to Memorial
Span the distance far between;
And the walls of dear old Founders
The reverbrations fling.
From Cox Hall to New Garden,
As our voices gayly ring.
Then across to fair Arcadia
The chimings wing their flight,
Till beyond the far-flung hill-tops
They kiss heaven's dome of light,
Then as if they rued their boldness.
Back they come in echoes gay;
And thus end the winged praises
Of the Crimson and the Gray.

One of our dignified Seniors! He may he
but anyway he is perfectly human. He is
capable of doing anything from preaching an
eloquent sermon to playing a prank on one
of his friends. Leslie has entered into all
the activities of a college life and it is a
marvel to his fellow classmates how he gets
off so much work with so much ease. He
finds time for every thing not in the curricu-
lum, yet he keeps on the good side of the
P — r— o — f — s. He is always kind, thought-
ful and untroubled.

Shields is one of the favorites of the class
of 1920, is always jolly and smiling, and a
true sincere friend. Secretary Baker chose
him as our representative to help break the
Hindenburg Line, His practice with heavy
artillery enables hirr. to continue to grab the
highest marks of any boy in our class.
Whether in Athletics, Society, or Y. M. C. A.
work, you will always find "Cam' where
good study and hard work are required. Bio-
logy and Chemistry hold no stumbling blocks
for him. He has proven his ability as a
doctor, by smashing and mending the hearts
of the fair sex. Some day he is going to
be a real doctor but he will continue to be
a specialist in heart troubles.

Katherine is a fair daughter of the sunny
south. She came to us from Mississippi in
the fall of 1916 and has made a record that
any one might i>nvy. While others are be-
ginning to get ready to start to commence
"Kat' has finished and is half thru with ano-
ther task. At receptions, entertainments and
other social affairs she is indispensable. She
is loyal to her friends, to her work and to her
purpose. Tact, originality and charm are the
things that have endeared her to her class

Small of statue, yet making up in quality
what he lacks in quanity, is Luby, our Quaker
preacher, who believes in "mid-week ' meet-
ings. During his four years at Guilford he
has been a loyal supportor of all college act-
ivities. The Y. M. C. A. and religous work
in general, to which he expects to devote his
life's work have found him an untiring work-
er. Luby is also a prominent member of the
college chorus and his rich tenor voice has
often been heartily applauded by Guilford
audiences. An outstanding characteristic of
Luby is his ardent admiration for the "fair
sex'', yet he has not allowed this to interfere
with his progress in school work. To sum
"Casey" up, we would say that he possesses
a generous disposition, a sense of loyalty to
his friends, is straight-forward in his meth-
ods and faithful in all his duties

Four years ago this charming, good natur-
ed lass left her montain home to take up her
abode at Guilford. During these years, "Ba-
by" has not only spent her time enlarging
her mental capacity, but thru her kind, con-
genial disposition, has won for herself numb-
ers of friends. Her scholastic record is ex-
cellent. Altho seemingly careless she is never-
theless a hard worker; and tliis very quality
we are sure, will place her in a position that
will do honor to her Alma Mater, her home,
and to herself.

Elsie came to Guilford with a determina-
tion to make good and on the long trail she
has followed she has never wavered from
her purpose. For her, to begin a tiling is to
master it. It's a marvel how this modest lit-
tle lady knows so much. She has a record
unspotted with bad lessons. And altho she
has been busy with school work she has not
left cut that very imrortant part of college
life, the making of friends. If Elsie succeeds
in after life as she has at college, Guilford
will be very proud of her in days to come.

Thelma's bright curls and pink cheeks won
for her the name of "China Doll' but she
has no other characteristics which warrant
such a name. When we are confronted by
a perplexing problem she is aiways to be de-
pended on for helpful suggestions and sound
judgment. She says what she thinks and al-
ways thinks things that are filled with wit
and humor, French verbs have no special
attraction for her, but at the piano, and with
the pamt brush, she is a marvel. She is
beyond a doubt the musician and artist of the
class and we are expecting her to win dis-
tinction in both arts. To know her is to
love her for her winning ways have made
"China Doll' the friend of everyone and the
pet of the class.

Mary is one of our most lovable girls. The
rose on her cheeks are nature's own handi-
work. Her bright laughing eyes, sweet face
and gentle manners win friends for her at
first sight. Always full of fun. yet she is
ever true and sincere. She loves most dear-
ly to tease but never carries her fun too far,
for rudeness in her is impossible. With a
heart just as true as her eyes are blue, she
is always ready to do anything she can to
help any one. A loyal class member and
a bright student, with plenty of common
sense combined she is a favorite of her
teachers as well as class mates. It is really
difficult to say which study she likes most
for she seems to have a habit of making
straight "A'' reports. She is especially in-
terested in Domestic Science — and — of course
that's all right and perfectly natural too.

charming manners, and good-natured dispo-

of the brightest members of our class. He is
especially interested in science, both chemis-
try and biology and no doubt he will find
future work along one of these lines. He is a
great lover of music and one has only to hear
his deep bass voice to appreciate it. Tennis
is his favorite sport and he is quite the best
player on the campus. All in all he is the em-
bodiment of those principles which go to
make true m^nh^od. and we predict for him a
fufun- both useful and prosperous.

Anna is one of our all-round girls, but one
must know her to appreciate her. On account
of her modest disposition, only those most
closely associated with her know of her love
of fun and fondness of a joke. Industrious
student and possessing strong tenacity of
purpose, she does well whatever she under-
takes. In society she shows the same loyal
spirit and always does her part well. She
possesses a talent for both vocal and instru-
mental music, but of all her studies she is
most interested in Domestic Science, and
seems to be unable to decide whether to
teach it or to take up another line of work,
but we think she will have an opportunity to
use it quite difTerently in the not far distant

for her friends. Thoughtful and unselfish tlie
comfort of others is always her first care.
Not the least in the category' of her charms is
her social grace. When in her presence we
are always at ease and her merry laugh is
good to hear. Music being her hobby,
she expects to continue that study after leav-
ing college and we predict for her a success-
ful future in the musical world, unless
she decides to practice domestic arts, in
which she is equally talented.

If you should search for a thousand years
you could not find a more modest and lovable
girl. Tho a trifle nervous and somewhat easi-
ly discouraged she persistently carries out the
thing she atlem,ts. She is a friend not only
to her class mates but to all whom she meets.
And this very friendship has won for her a
place in the heart of all Guilford girls. This
was proved by her election to the presidency
of the Y W. C. A. which place she has filled
most efficiently. Frances is an all round girl.

Innocence personified ; sparkling brown
eyes; brown curls; merry laugh; graceful
manners; that and more is Frances. Her
kind heart and pleasant disposition have
drawn to her the large number of friends
she claims. In her class work no one excels
her in asking questions and it is. perhaps,
due to this that she is always wide awake
on all her subjects. As a society worker she
is always ready with something worth while
and the Philomatheans claim her as one of
their best members. Along with all this she
is of a domestic temperament and this is
probably the reason she chose for her major
subject Honte Economics.

1920 Senior Class History
O record the history of a class so tossed and torn by the storms of
the recent world conflagration and by the present strains and de-
mands of a reconstruction period, would tax the ability of the most
capable and exact historian. Classes have preceeded us and classes
will follow us but none seems to have suffered so acutely in loss
of members as we. Our initial enrollment was forty four, the final
is nineteen. Such a reduction is due, either directly or indirectly, to
unusual and unavoidable circumstances arising between the years of 1916
and 1920. rather than to the lack of ambition in our former fellow comrades.
No less exacting of manhood and means are the reconstruction endeavors
of the world, and more locally, our own Alma Mater, to which cause and to
the fruitful and untiring efforts of our President we have loyally pledged
The history of the Class of 1920, as is common to all classes, has its origin
in our first class meeting. That first class meeting! — One of the most me-
morable events to be recorded in the history of our sojourn at old "G. C."
Why? Probably because we were not permitted to meet until all credential
and records were in, which requirement delayed our first meeting until Nov-
ember first, 1916. More probably is it so memorable because we now think
of our class as a green and uncultivated pasture-land in which it seems every
plant, however small and insignificant, was the greenest of the green. Regard-
less of our ignorance in organization, formalities, the meeting proceeded.
Algia Newlin was elected president and ably piloted us in the first mile of our
journey. As is characteristic of Freshmen, we did our part of strolling about
the campus, garbed in flashy paraphernalia rind possessing an air of dignity,
distinction, and importance worthy of any Senior, and approaching that of a
potentate. But alas ! the unrelenting Sophomores at once stripped us of
our superfluous array. In keeping with the traditional custom, they taught
us how to sing, dance, and run like well, that was when snow was on the
ground and covered everything but "rats". Thus were we felt the conspicuous
subjects of the bloody Soplis. To precipitate the actions and attitude of mind
of the upper classmen toward us, we were victorious in the inter-class debate.
This success remains a source of plcTsant memories. Having survived a
long hard winter of initiation, we came at last to the first mile stone which
marks the close of our Fresh experience. We now look upon this first year
with mingled joys and sorrows.
After a brief vacation with homefolks and friends, we returned to our Alma
Mater to resume the satiation of our thirst for knowledge. In the first term
of our Sophomore year we excercised rare discrimination in electing Nigal
r4arlette as class president. He did not betray our trust, but set a noble ex-
ample for us in athletics and scholarship. In the second semester his able
successor was Hugh Moore.
We were eager to become known to the Freshman Class and did all in our
power to administer justice to our subordinates in a rich, round, rotund
fashion. In this respect some of our members, still mindful of the cruelties suf-
fered at the hands of our superiors. "went over the top" in a hair cutting cam-
paign, which was brought to a hazardous climax with no little agitation. It was
in this year, in which our self-esteem and self-appreciation rose highest, that
the significant 1920 was indelibly stamped on some of the beauty spots of
Guilford, the cattle barn for insiruice No history of Guilford College, how-
ever brief may be the period covered, can be complete without mention of
our standing record in base ball. This year we championed the Carolinas
with a team on which five of our Sophomores held undisputed positions.
This year our representatives in all forms of athletics, continued to add glory
and honor to their already enviable records.
The lordly supremacy and overbearing disposition characterizing Sopho-
mores began to disappear, because now the approach of the finals began to
haunt us. and the critical transition period bridging the first and second
parts of our college career was at hand. Our Sophomore year now lapsed
into the clutches of history and we speedily sought the inviting retreats of
the old home place for a care-free vacation.
Our Junior year now introduced the third mile of steep steps to the com-
mon goal. Yes, it was our Junior year, but where were our Junior boys?
From among twelve Sophomores of the preceeding year, only four returned as
Juniors. The remaining eight had sacrificel themselves to the service of the
United States Army and associated organizations. With Leslie Barrett as
Captain the Juniors bravely launched forth on a sea of seemingly insur-
mountable handicaps — and incidentally indigestible war time rations. Ere
the opening of the second term, this old world had partially regained her
equilibrium and the Junior class, with at least N 2 concentration of thoughts,
efforts and determination began to put "first things first" — to eliminate er-
roneous conceptions of the buckle down to a more serious and truer purpose
in college life. Thus with a quality rather than quantity of members we were
led to a successful close of our Junior year by a dependable executive leader,
none other than David White.
In the Fall of 1919 we returned with fitting dignity to resume our upward
race of the last long mile. If not cultivated, it was borrowed from some
haughty Freshman possessing an excess of the afore-specitied Senior neces-
sity. No sacrifice can be made without receiving a due return. Thus were
we fortunate in the return of Daniel David Shields Cameron whom we una-
nimously chose to lead our class to our final goal.
The class of 1920 has played no little part in college athletics Altho we
can boast of no star representatives in our last two years, we are none the
less loyal to the various teams. In girls athletics at Guilford College our girls
have been leaders for four years. In the gymnasium and on the field. Vera,
Donna, and Vanner have rarely been excelled and Alma's fondness and in-
terest in tennis has been a potent factor in keeping the sport alive.
Who has been more instrumental in the welfare of the Y. M. C. A. and
Literary Societies than Hugh, Leslie, Shields, and Arthur? Who in the Y. W.
than Frances and Alma? Who in the Chorus than Luby? Who in Social
functions than David? The allotted space is too small in which to tabulate
the merits of each member of the class of 1920. To be suspected of having
the ability to do justice to my illustrious classmates is crude flattery. Not
only is time too short, but the space is inadequate for relating the facts con-
gruous with the glory, honor, and accomplishments of my fellow-comrades
of 1920. However, we must take time to recognize the inestimable value of
our day girls. Domestic responsibilities have prohibited them from particip-
ating extensively in athletics, but how Mary, Anna, and Frances have master-
ed innumerable recipes and Elsie the profound depths of history and educa-
tion, is an art worthy of investigation.
To the Editor-in-Chief and Business Manager, the student body in general
and the Senior class in particular offer unanimous praise, profound and sinc-
ere gratitude, in the expression of our genuine appreciation for their persist-
ent and sacrificial efforts in making this annual a success.
The very thought of this year being our last as a united class bears with it
a marked degree of seriousness and regret. The major portion of our college
life is now history; our life as a class is chiefly behind; we have learned many
things; we have left many unlearned; we have absorbed much from our text
books; we have got more from the habits and association we have formed,
for years we have labored together with patience and love for the prosperity
and permanence of our college; for four years we have been aware of her
struggles and achievements. Now that our race is nearing its completion we
depart with sad hearts; we leave our considerate brothers and amiable sisters,
some of whom we may never see again; but we go forth with eternal and un-
shaken loyalty to our Alma Mater which we have learned to love and respect.
Whether our ship of fate be driven to some foreign shore or whether it remain
harbored in our native land, our tongues will ever voice this proud old song : —
'•Hail! Dear old Guilford,
Thy Loyal Sons are We".
Payt' T hirty-n'tne
It seems but yesterday we came
As Freshmen to the Halls of Fame
And now commencement day is near
The crowning joy of all the year.
We might with tears and sad regret
Look forward to our parting, yet
We cheer ourselves, with hope inspire
And strive to reach still higher and higher.
The happy days we've spent together
In pleasant and in stormy weather
Have filled us with firm purpose true
Our work to find and faithfully do.
Our aim and purposes are one
As when a class we first began
All differences are cast aside
And faith and trust in each abide.
The four short golden years are past
But vision of a life more vast
Loom up before us as we dream
Of future days and what may seem.
A life much fraught with work and care
Yet filled with hope and trust and prayer
The fruits our lives have gathered here
From our old Alma Mater dear.
SAT at my study table with my psychology book open before me —
but I was not studying — I had to prepare a paper on the psychology
of Spiritism and communication with the dead. There was nothing
about it in my psychology to help me. James says only that there z's
a "certain modicum" which has never been explained. I turned to
the modern magazines which were full of articles about materaliza-
tion, tippingtables, automatic writing, and a whole lot of other so
called spiritualistic phenomena. I threw down the magazine in disgust. What
was the world coming to? I wondered were we progressing backward to the
lime when everyone believed in ghosts (now seances) and witches (now called
mediums!? "I for one do not believe such foolishness," I said aloud
as I picked up a pencil and drew some sheets of paper toward me preparatory
to writing of "The Absurdity of Twentieth Century Witchcraft."
Then suddenly I was overtaken by complete vacuity of mind, I felt dizzy
To my astonishment my lingers tightened on the pencil and I was writing in
a close, unfamiliar script. Page after page was covered, then a signature. My
hand lost its energy and lay with relaxed fingers allowing the pencil to drop
and roll off the table to the floor. My first emotion was anger which over-
came the vague and helpless feeling which had possessed me during the
writing. I picked up the last sheet and looked at the signature. It was simply
"Sibyl". I turned to the first and read: —
"I am sending you a message in this way in order that you may cease to
doubt that there is communication between the people on the earth and those
;n this world of spirits. I lived many centuries ago and had communication
with the spirit world. But since I came to that world myself the people of
the earth no longer hear our message. So we must make new channels of
communication between us. I am the ancient spirit of Prophecy and shall
now tell you something you would like to know — the futures of your class-
mates, the class of 1920 of Guilford College.
"There is in your class a boy narned Leslie Barrett who is a preacher. He
will continue his study in one of the most famous theological seminaries in
the country and after some years of preaching will finally return to Guilford
College to become head of the Biblical Department. There his inspiring
sermons, stimulating lectures, and conscientious class work will make of the
preachers going out from the college stronger and better men than they might
otherwise have been.
"Everyone will be greatly surprised by what Shields Cameron does. He,
with the fine old Southern name that has always stood for all that is brave
and chivalrous in our southern gentleman, will uphold the traditions of our
college. After leaving Guilford he will spend several years at Johns Hopkins
where he will take the M.D. degree. As a surgeon, Shields will have splend-
id success as he does in every thing he attempts. As a gentleman "par ex-
cellance" as well as a surgeon Dr. Cameron will be well known and loved in
the largest hospitals of America and Europe.
"You have a Society leader in your class in the person of Katherin Camp-
bell. She. as the wife of one of the most prominent and wealthy brokers of
Wall Street, will become the leader of New York Society, even as she has led
the social life of Guilford College during her college days. But her hfe will
not be a mere round of pleasure for she will show by her ennumerable good
works that a society woman can do much to help society as a whole.
"There is another boy in your class who is a preacher. Luby Casey will
combine his preaching with his splendid tenor and become one of the most
famous ministers of this generation. And the "Singing Parson" will be loved
everywhere he goes.
"The spirit of service is manifested in each member of our class but in no
one to a greater degree than in Alma Chilton. For she, turning her back on
a public career in America, will go to the very heart of South America and be
content to teach the benighted natives how to live and in so doing she will
"You have another famous member in your class although in quite another
way. Thelma Cloud will be one of the most popular magazine and novel iUus-
trators of her time Not only in illustrating will her iaient find expression
but her paintings will be found in all the famous galleries of the world. Se-
veral of which will hang in Guilford College as gifts of the artist to her Alma
"Mary Coble by her college course has well fitted herself for her life work.
She will begin teaching Domestic Science upon leaving college. Although
she makes a very great success in teaching what she knows so well, she will
after a few years abandon the teaching profession to become the happy mis-
tress of a bungalow.
"Norman Fox will first attempt singing on the stage but finding he does not
care for laurels and fame he will return to the Old North State. Here he dis-
covers he can do most good as a teacher. As professor of Biology at the
University of North Carolina, Norman will do much to advance scientific
investigation in the South.
"You have already guessed who will be the first bride of your class. Anna
Henley will very soon prove that by her modesty and refinement she is well
suited to be the wife of a great man.
One of the names that will be written in the Hall of Fame and make Guilford
College proud of the class of 1920 is that of Genevieve Lindley. She with
her pen will make the nations laugh and weep at her will. Yes. your modest,
unassuming Jennie will be the most popular novelist of the next few years.
"Authur Lineberry will be a railroad man. not a train workman but a high
official in one of the largest railway companies in the United States where he
will eventually become president
"It will be rather hard for Donna McBane to decide what her life work will
be. She will be the first girls athletic director at Guilford where she will do
great things to raise the standard of girls athletic in the college Later she
will abandon athletics to become a teacher of modern languages in the High
Schools of North Carolina. Finally she will settle down in her own home on
a farm in the western part of the state where she describes the life as 'Two
little love-bees buzzing in the bowers'.
"Vera Joy McBane will live up to her name by scattering joy and happi-
ness wherever she goes. She will do a great deal more for humanity than
she will ever get credit for. Living only for those she can help and uplift
Vera will be one of the really great social service workers of North Carolina.
(Yet her work will not be limited to this state but will be felt in many.)
"Frances McCracken thinks that she can do most good as a teacher in the
public school of North Carolina but she will change her mind. Frances will
teach kindergarten until she finds her place in a home. In your class there
is a large number of home makers but none will be more successful than
Frances who takes great pleasure in everything connected with housework.
"There is no member of your class whose college life foretells her future
with greater accuracy than does that of Frances Moore. As she has been
the leader in the Y. W. C. A. and all religious activities of Guilford College,
when she goes out in the world she will be one of the truUy great Y. W. C A.
secretaries of America.
"The third preacher in your class, Hugh Moore, will be the really great
preacher of them all. He cares not for fame or wealth but only for service
to humanity. As the pastor of a village church, Hugh will prove that even a
small meeting may be a live force in the life of a community. Beloved by all
his life will not be spent in vain, although it be passed in a quiet village
"Vanner N eece nill join the ranks of teachers. As a 'math' teacher she will
make a great success. Such a success that she will rise to the highest posi-
tion in the educational system of North Carolina. For Vanner will be the first
woman to be elected as State Superintendent of Public Schools.
"David White will be what the world calls an eminently successful busi-
ness man. His name will be a familiar one in New York financial circles. He
will be the only millionaire in the class — a prominent broker of Wall Street
When Guilford College needs any more addition they will always turn to
David White. He it is who will build a new gymnasium and also a new boys
dormitory called the "White House".
"As for you" — I Here the writing became almost
illegible, I could barely decipher a word here and there i "Great success" —
"Educational" "Unexpected fields" "Changes" "new ideas"
(The words ran into each other and ended in an utterly meaningless wavy
line, followed by the signature "SIBIL. "
The Last Will and Testament of the Class of 1920
The class 1920, being, of sound mind, though infaUible memory, but some
of its members having already lived their alloted portion of thirty-six months
and three days on this greatly beloved campus, realizing that the approaching
date of June 1, 1920 v^'ill see us depart these walls for realms unknown, does
hereby solemnly express these last desires and makes this its last Will and
First; — We do will and desire that none of these items, though known,
shall go into effect until after we shall have spent our last day in this bright
college world. But that on the day following, after-named shall carry out each
desire expressed in the following.
Second: — Whereas, the senior dignity vested in the frail bodies of Frances
Moore and Vera McBane, has protected the class of '20 from much misusage,
we will and bequeath said dignity to Berry Lee White and Mary Dixon, prov-
died they care for it, watch it, and display it on special occasions, only.
Third : — Since it has been allowed us as seniors to enjoy certain privileges,
namely: going to the store when we please, walking down the station road,
visiting during study hour, going to town on important business more than
the usual four times, having a table for only seniors, chaperoning timid Fresh-
men and even wise Sophomores to station, store and Miss Cotton's, giving
advice and setting examples to preps, presiding over organizdiion, and all
such other privileges as Miss Louise and Prof. Mills see fit to bestow, we be-
queath, with tender feelings and gentle words to our friends and shares of
college burdens, the Juniors.
Fourth : — Whereas, the class of '20 was the first to have the honor of occupy-
ing the fr-ont seats in chapel, we bequeath our mortgage, separate and apart
from all other items, to the incoming senior classes, year by year. Provided:
the members of these classes shall give proof that they will never speak after
Dr. Binford has taken his place before the audience, nor speak during chapel
exercises, that they sit straight in their seats and never write notes.
Fifth: — Coming down to more practical things, we hereby bequeath the
chafing dish, here-to-fore in possession of certain seniors, to each part of the
incoming classes, which shall have abode at Founders Hall.
Sixth : — Whereas, during our sophomore year, we had for our sacred symbol
a pair of scissors and rat-cap, these we solemnly hand down to Napoleon Bo-
napart White to be used according to his discretion and pleasure.
Seventh : — Since "jitneys" have been in vogue during part of our stay here,
and the Overland car has been the dependence of David J, White for business
and pleasure, having failed him only once, during Xmas holidays of 1918, but
especially faithful Nov. 11, 1918, we desire that Madge Code shall henceforth
have the use of said jitney, provided: that David does not wish to keep it in
the family, and that Madge will make such use of it as is in accordance with
its use this year and formerly.
Eigth ; — Since the girls in our class who are especially frivolous, Mary
Coble. Anna Henley and Elsie Clegg, are to depart, we bequeath their ability
to flirt and smile to Johnie Bell Grant and Irma Harrison.
Ninth: — All of Miss Louise's and Miss Benbow's kind words and permis-
sions are to be henceforth in their hands to be bestowed on the "Attic gang".
We hope they will be as lenient toward them as toward us
Tenth: — in our great consternation lest the Choral club should cease its ex-
istence without the melodious voices of Katherine Campbell and Genevieve
Lindley, we desire that their ability to sing be possessed ty two of the incom-
ing freshmen of the class of 1924.
Eleventh: — Being quite unwilling for Guilford Athletics to decrease in im-
portance next year, we bequeath the great athletic ability of David White,
Luby Casey, and Hugh Moore to "baby shore" Tom Anderson, and Tom
Twelfth : — To our respected faculty, we bequeath all faculty marks, worn
out report blanks, absence notices, and "cuts", with our wish that they will
be equally distributed among needy students of coming years.
Thirteenth: — Whereas, rooms 7 and 25 of N. G. H. have been held by Ge-
nevieve Lindley and Vanner Neece for six and five years, respectively, said
rooms will now be available to any applicant, promising to occupy them for
as long term or longer.
Fourteenth : — Realizing that Leslie Barrett and Norman Fox are especially-
noted for mathematical ability, we decree that James Spottiswood Taylor shall
henceforth be endowed with the mathematical turn of mind of these aforesaid
brilliant students. It is to be hoped that said bequest will in no way harm
the one, in whose favor it is made.
Fifteenth : — Wheareas, on "Psych" class during the fall of 1919 Arthur Line-
berry and Frances McCracken had monopolies on questions pertaining to
"love" and "Napoleon Bonapart" respectively, such monopolies are bequeathed
to Florence Martin and Eva Lewallyn.
Sixteenth: — To our Alma Mater, we bequeath our undying loyalty and
Seventeenth : — Whereas we have spent four years, full of pleasure and the
best things of life, on this campus, we will and bequeath the sum of $1000.00
to the endowment fund, to be mysteriously conveyed by a sacret messenger
from the "wide, wide world" into which we are about to enter.
Eighteenth : — To the members of the G. C. Faculty, who have been so pa-
tient with us throughout our college course, who have taught us wisdom and
led us in the paths of knowledge, we will and bequeath our sincere respect
Nineteenth: — If any of these requirements be overlooked or violated, let
all blame fall on our executor. Jonathan Pitts.
Hereby we set our hands and seals this the first day of June 1920.
THE CLASS OF '20.
History of the Junior Class
ET once more. O ye Gods of Time and Fate, do the Juniors come
forth from the palaces of Olympus, reluctantly exposing their many
failures and modestly giving voice to their many ( ?) achievements.
Altho entering college at an unlucky time to acquire quantity, yet
quality, which we hold to be the more desirable attribute, has not
been entirely lacking.
It was on a dreary day in early September when we first beheld our prison
gates. In we came, fifty strong — long and short, fat and lean, and such a
formidable army of rats could scarce be found. Few hours had elapsed be-
fore everybody on the hill ranging from Miss Louise to John Pitts had be-
come aware of our presence. Verily, our activities those first few days were
many. We scored our first great victory when we won out over our wise
counsellors the Sophomores in the Freshman-Sophomore debate When the
new girls played the old girls in basket ball, again we were victorious. Many
of our boys caused Coach Doak to sit up and take notice.
Some of them even made the Varsity Baseball Team.
In the fall of 17 we again assembled at Guilford to resume our duties. But
wait ! Is it really the once Freshman, now Sophomore class of '21 assem-
bling ? Or is it that we have stumbled on the wrong crowd? Alas! War has
indeed waved his man-thirsty hand o'er our fair ranks. Seven girls and only
three boys! But did we spend our time grieving over our great loss? No.
Our little band lifted its head and smiled, and a happier family could not
be found on the college campus. Tho having the reputation of being the
smallest class in college, yet we were represented in all college activities and
kept the rats in check besides..
Lo ! A flood of sunshine suddenly bursts on the Quaker sky. The cause —
it is September and the Juniors have arrived. The Jolly Juniors of '21.
Eagerly we scan the list handed in from the Deans office, and find all our
members back in their places. We take another look and discover that at
least ten new members have been added to our ranks. Truly, war has given
back in part that which he had taken away. Cares and all synonyms are un-
known to the Juniors, but when real, downright, hard work is required, the
Juniors are in it. Most of our boys this year arc members of the foot-ball
squad and three of them played on the Varsity team.
"Come what! Come may!
Jolly Juniors are Jolly Juniors alway."

Sophomore Class History
HE vivid green of the atmosphere around Founders Hall on Octo-
ber 2, 1918 was readily explained by one of the Sophomores of that
year : —
"What else could one expect." quoth he,
"From fifty-four green sprouts on a very green tree?"
"That they know it all — we can readily see
But before they are limbs — and you take it from me
They'll be rugged and brown, even as brown as we."
We were green, we admit it, and fresh — ah yes. the Sophomores had occa-
sion to salt us down quite often and even to use "Zip" that we might stick.
But even we had our virtues. We knew that under the green exterior
there was much that was really worth while. Our first effort to convert the
world to our belief was the choice of our motto, "Onward and upward with
ever a smile." We also proved ourselves wholly sane and capable of wise
decision when we chose our first officers, for surely no one could have steer-
ed the class of '22 more successfully through its first term than did Grady
as president and "Ed" as secretary.
Nor were we lacking in "pep" and even Miss Louise admits that Guilford
never saw a "peppier" bunch. We had it! We had it! We will continue to
have it!! H the honorable reader should deign to allow his honorable self a
shadow of disbelief, let us prove it.
The Freshmen won out in the track meet. They furnished eleven Varsity
men to different phases of Athletics. They won out in three of the four
society contests, not having a representative in the fourth. And finally they
were successful in the greatest of their combats. — The Freshman — Sopho-
more debate. Now ! "Thee doubter, hide thy face in shame."
Is it any wonder that the twenty-four members of the class of '22 who re-
turned to Guilford on September 9, 1919 were just the least bit inclined to
be wise old Sophomores? Is it any wonder that these same Sophomores were
just the least little bit inclined to feel sorry for the insignific?nt Freshmen
who had not yet made a place for themselves in Guilford's "Who's Who"?
We wondered last year what it would be like to walk arond with one's head
in the clouds and snub the wearers of the green. Well — we have found out
that it isn't what the Freshmen crack it up to be. We don't really hate those
young creatures although we do like stacking their rooms. We find it really
hard keeping our faces straight at a rat dance and above all. we find that we
are very anxious that these rats should turn out to be good rats.
The activities of college life this year have been few. We have had a chance
,thus far to be represented in foot-ball alone, but we are lying in wait for
all the good things to come, not only during this year but during the next
when we will be, so called, upper classmen. Then it is that the class of '22
will add the Q. E. D. to its proof that the greenest sprouts make the strong-

History of Freshman Class
N September 9. 1919. the class of 1923 entered Guilford College
with forty eight members full of enthusiasm and with a desire to
work diUgently. Everyone realized the new responsibilities which
were involved in the career we had begun.
The Freshman class met for the first time on October 8, 1919, at
Founder's hall in the students' parlor, and there organized. We elect-
ed as our president, J. Spottiswood Taylor, and as our secretary,
Hazel E. Richardson. We selected for our class colors, "Silver and Rose";
for our class flower, "Sweet Pea": and for our motto. "Climb Though the
Rocks be Rugged".
On Tuesday night, November 11, a debating preliminary was held for the
Freshman Class at which Dabney White. William Wolff, and Paul Nichols
were chosen to represent the class in all debates.
Our class is represented in every form of college activities. Everyone in
the class is a member of the Y. W. C. A. or Y. M. C. A. and is also a member
of one of the four literary societies Our class, too had the honor of furnish-
ing one of the college representatives to the International Student 'Volunteer
Conference, which was held at Des Moines.
We are well represented by both girls and boys in all phases of college
athletics. Several have won honors in track, base ball, basket ball, and tennis.
Two boys from our class played on the college fott ball team and were strong
forces in helping to win the college victories.
Wjth a willing and eager spirit we enter upon any task assigned to us. We
are united in spirit and yield willingly to the opinions of the majority. We
entered with much enthusiasm upon the campaign for the endowment fund.
The fact has already dawned upon us tht our future path is filled with
numerous obstacles, but we have a never-ending perseverance which we feel
sure will enable us to overcome all things and carry us victorious thru our
college career. But at present it is our ambition to enter with full member-
ship into the Sophomore class.
From the day of our arrival we have been imbued with the Guilford spirit
and we are each day becoming more loyal Guilfordians.

The Young Men's Christian Association
The Young Men's Christian Association of Guilford College has since its or-
ganization been one of the most powerful factors on the campus in crystalliz-
ing the spirit of right living and thinking among the boys. Taking the tri-
angle of Spirit, Mind and Body as its motto, the Y. M. C. A. has faithfully
endeavored under the leaderhsip of the best men on the campus to mold
Christian Characters out of the young men who have come to us.
In carrying out this plan the Association has sought to interest itself iu
almost every phase of student life. In conjunction with the Y. W. C. A. and
Faculty social committee, socials and entertainments of various sorts are given
that help materially to enliven the student life. At the beginning of school
each new student is presented a hand book which helps him to accustom him-
self to his new surroundings Bible study courses that offer a variety of sub-
jects for discourse are organized and conducted by student leaders under the
auspices of the Association, These classes coming as they do directly after
the Sunday morning chapel excercises, which are conducted jointly with the
Y. W. C. A., are always well attended. Perhaps the most important work of
the Y. M. C. A. here is the Thursday evening meetings which are usually con-
ducted by a student or Faculty member. The Association generally has se-
eral prominent visiting speakers from time to time during the year.
The Guilford Association this year sent two representatives to the interna-
tional Y. M. C. A conference at Detroit. Michigan; bought and installed new
seats in the Y. M. C. A. hall: and in conjunction with the Y. W. C. A. sent a
delegate to the Student Volunteer Conference at Des Moins, Iowa. — achieve-
ments that are scarcely equalled by any other college in the state.

ROM the time a girl decides to come ot Guilford College until its
gates are closed behind her for the last thne she feels the influence
of the Young Womens Christian Association. Through it she re-
ceives the first friendly word of welcome and it is the last to bid
her farewell. This association has for the past several years been
proud to claim as members every girl in the dormitories. Also sev-
eral community girls and the majority of the ladies of the faculty are every
year on its roll.
Since 1904 when it was organized the Y. W. C. A. has been one of the
strongest associations on the campus. Its influence is spread tho add the col-
lege activities as that of no other student organization. Its aim is to develop
in every girl a well rounded christian character, to awaken in them a realiza-
tion of their responsibility as social beings and as children of the Great Fath-
er and to arouse them to a sense of the world's needs.
That much sincere honest work has been done in this association may be
proved first by the strength of the organization, it being one of the seven,
student Y. W. C A.'s in the South Atlantic States last year on the honor roll.
Second by the number who. on acocunt of inspiration gained in the Associa-
tion work here have gone out from college with a deepened love for the
King, which has given them such zeal and eagerness for His work, that in
their various fields of activity their influence is being used for the building
up of His Kingdom.

Student Government at Guilford College
INCE 1917 The Young Womens Student Government Association has
been, one of the big organizations of Guilford. It was organized to
develop self reliance, honesty and a true spirit of Democracy. As
a child learning to walk, stumbles and only masters the art by con-
I tinuous effort, just so has Student Government established a firm
foundation among Guilford young women. Those with whom it was
once unpopular are now its ardent supporters; those who formerly regarded
it as a joke, now realize that it does effect the lives of students.
The Executive Board, composed of representatives from each class
holds regular bi-weekly meetings.
This organization maintains quiet and orderly conduct in the buildings,
and on the campus, and may we say also insures good conduct in the outside
This has been an exceptionally good year. Students of every class have
co-operated. Just as man slaughter is looked upon as a barbarous act, so are
misdemeaners looked upon as acts out of keeping with college students, and
Guilford young women have learned this lesson.

HE music department is in charge of Mr. James Westley White, vo-
cahst, teacher of singing and director of the Choral Club, and of
Miss Barbara Rudisill, teacher of piano.
The stressing of the Choral department is being brought about this
'^^'ii season by the undertaking of a series of Oratorios and Cantatas
of a serious nature. On December the eighteenth the first appear-
ance of the chorus for the year took place in the Memorial Hall when Gaal's
"Holy City" was sung in fine style under the direction of Mr. White with
Miss Rudisill as accompanist. The Chorus has the assistance of Mr. William
Hollis Hatfield, tenor of Boston on this ocassion, and Misses Harmon, Wil-
liams and Tomlinson, pupils of Mr. White, as soloists for the contralto and
soprano parts. Mr. White aside from directing, was heard as the barytone
soloist on this occasion.
Another cantata of Gaul "Joan of Arc" is in preparation and will be given
at Easter time. Also recitals by pupils of both the vocal and instrumental de-
partments are of frequent occurrence. A male quartette of excellence is a
popular attraction of college functions, also a small chorus of picked voices
from the girls of the college. Preparations for the music of an out-door pa-
geant to be held in May are underway.

Foot Ball Manager;
niHE athletic situation at Guilford this year while it has not been quite
' up to our pre-war standard has nevertheless been much better than
it was expected to be at the first of the year. Coach Robert S. Doak,
who was secured as athletic director upon his return from France
had practically to start with a new machine all round. There were
a few of last year's Varsity men back, and some few others who had
been out of school a year or more. The High and Preparatory schoo s had
sent us the usual number of athletes. Starting with these as a nucleus for the
various teams Coach Doak has worked up some teams that have held their
own-against the best in the state. Guilford never has had as large a student
body as the other colleges in the state, but the proportion of men who go
out to try for the various teams is undoubtedly the highest in the state.
The three major sports and Tennis have had their usual large following
this year Fox and Sundean won out in the tennis tournament last fall, but
lost to Wake Forest later on. Track has not been actively engaged in, but
Coach Doak expects to send a team to represent us at the State meet in May.
The student body has given the teams, excellent support all the year.
Cheer Leaders Barrett and White have always been on their job and have
helped wonderfully towards winning our games.
Foot-ball which for so many years was barred at Guilford is at last back
to stay. While the teams won no great renown for themselves this year yet
they played some mighty close games with some of the strongest teams in the
two Carolinas and Virginia. Coach Doak started the year with a rather assort-
ed bunch of material. Some of the aspirants for gridiron honors had played
last year or the year before here at Guilford, some had played on high school
teams, and some had never seen a foot-ball before. They were all, however,
willing, ready and had plenty of spirit. They sweated and ran, and fell, and
plunged in that hot September dust until Coach finally announced that he
had a team he could trot out for the public's approval.
They went down to Davidson with high hopes, which alas were soon dis-
sipated in the dust of a 30-0 defeat at the hands of the Presbyterians. State
College was next on Manager Taylor's schedule. The team lost there by a
rather large majority.
The trip to Spartanburg was however more successful. Wofford had a
strong team but Jim Barnard got away with an intercepted forward pass and
out ran the entire Methodist team for the touchdown that tied the score.
Two invasions of Virginia were made. The first time to play Lynchburg
College. The second to meet Roanoke College. Both contests resulted in de-
feats by clos margins.
Th finale of the season was however more satisfactory. The team met
and defeated our ancient enemy Elon by a 7-0 score in Greensboro. It was a
hard fought game from start to finish. Practically the whole school went over
to cheer the team. The ball was on Elon's two yard line once in the first half,
but a fluke lost us an otherwise easy touchdown. In the last quarter however.
Tremain opened lire on the Elonites with Coach Doak's pet shift formation
which netted us a touchdown in about five minutes play. Smith's toe brought
us the other point
Men who won letters were: Newlin, J. C; Anderson; Cox; M. White;
John Taylor; Bascomb Shore; Smith; Rice; Raiford ; Stout; Joe Taylor and
R. Tremain. Stars were awarded A. I. Newlin, and Stafford.
Manager Newlin arranged a splendid schedule for tlie team this year:
but the Influenza epidemic caused the cancellation of the latter part of it.
Nevertheless, enough games were played to give us an idea of the playing
qualities of our team this year. Thy won four out of the nine games played
during the season. This is no mean record by any means.
The first game of the season was played before Christmas with Draper
Y. M. C. A. This was a walkaway for the Quaker quint. The first College
game on the home floor was with, Trinity. This game was lost by the heart
breaking score of 23-20. The game with the University of North Carolina m
Greensboro was close and full of spectacular plays from beginning to end, but
they got the lead on the Quakers in the last half, and won. Greensboro Y. M
C. A. was beaten, twice by good majorities. The quintet also ran up a 30-22
score on Davidson on our home floor. This was the most exciting game of the
season. The Eastern trip on which the team played Trinity. A. E. and Wake
Forest however resulted in as many defeats. The final game which was lost
by a 25-31 score on the home floor was played with A. and E.
Players winning letters were: Zachary (Captain), Frazier, Anderson, and
A. T Newlin, (Manager).
Guilford has always prided herself on her base ball team and the team
this y^ar is one that we feel sure will uphold the Crimson and Grey with
honor to the end of the season. They won the opening game from Lenior
3-0, and the Easter Monday game with Elon by same count . The Eastern
trip however, resulted in a string of defeats. We lost to Wake Forest 3-2;
A. and E. 5-1 ; Trinity and Elon in about the same proportion. Five more
games are yet to be played. The following men make up the Varsity squad:

Young Women's Athletic Association
MONG the many phases of college life which attract the attention,
time and talent of the girls in our midst, one thing stands out pre-
dominantly here. Do you ask what it is? This is an association that
not only every girl is a member of, but one that practically every
girl takes part in.
This particular part of college life has, for only a few years, been an
organization of its own. Prior to 1913, girls athletics were under the auspices
of the Young Women's Christian Association. But realizing that sufficient in-
terest was not being manifested by the girls, in their sports, and believing
that much better results would be accomplished if girls athletics were organ-
ized entirely separate from the Y. W. C. A., it was decided that girls Athletics
shoudl be organized as an association of its own. This was done and since then
interest in this line of college activity has been gradually growing until now
we believe that the association rests on a firm foundation and its financial
support — and co-operation to accomplish much good.
The Association consists of four different departments: basket-ball, ten-
nis, base ball and track, all of which are of such a nature as to meet the phy-
sical needs of every girl, and the season of each sport follows immediately
after another, thus extending athletics throughout the entire school and giving
each girl the opportunity of taking part in more than one phase of athletics.
Each department has a different manager who duty is to look after the gen-
era Imanagement and interest of her respective department and who is also
responsible for the interest that is taken and the good that is accomplished in
her own department.
The absence of a girl's coach this year has been some what of a draw-
back to the progress of our athletics although we have not allowed this to
hinder us to such an extent as to lower the high standard of our Association
in the least. Guilford girls need an athletic directress who can give practically
all her time to the work of physical education. No member of the faculty, be
she ever so capable, can do her prescribed curriculum work efficiently and at
the same time do justice to athletic duties. It is hoped that by another colleg
iate year the Girls' Athletic Association will be fortunate as to have a regular

OR the last two decades it has been generally understood that Base
Ball at Guilford was out of the realm of girls athlettics, but the ex-
perience of the last two years has exploded this belief. Base Ball
was instituted at Guilford in the fall of '18 and since been a very
popular and successful outdoor sport. Girls manifest an unusual
amount of interest in this line and have played some exciting
The season of '18 closed with a final game between two carefully chosen
teams, the Crimsons and the Grays. The fall season of '19 closed with a final
game of Sophomore-Freshmen against Seniors- 1 uniors. The Sophomore-
Freshman team was victorious.
The Base ball season begins in the middle fall when it is too early to go
in for Basket ball and rather late for Tennis. An unusually large number
take part. "G's" are awarded to those -svho meet the requirements.

ITH the close of the Basket ball comes the Tennis season. This par-
ticular sport is usually begun in the fall but no great amount of in-
terest is displayed until the spring season. When the warm spring
days arrive, and one loves to be out in the open world, nothing is
more enjoyable than a good, lively game of tennis anJ such games
may be seen on Guilford courts at this time of year. For both the
faculty and students take an active part in this sport. For the girls who do
not wish to take part in more violent exercises such as basket Ijall and base
ball, tennis proves to be the favorite game because of the mild exercise that
it affords. But since the spring tennis is the last of the athletic seasons and
practically all other sports have closed up for the year, every girl now has a
chance and, moreover, she is usually anxious to play a big part in the final
of the athletic series. Class games and tournaments are the most interesting
features of tennis during the yar.
The Girls' Athletic Association can boast of having four good courts and
plenty of physical material to make use of them.
This year, so far, we have no brilliant records to relate, but definite plans
are \'reajy made and prospects arc inded promising for a successful season

Girls" Basket Ball.
URING the winter months, when the weather is too cold and wet for
outdoor sports, the girls resort to Basket ball. Although this is an
old game, its one of. and seemingly the most popular game played
among the Guilford girls. Reasons for it being a favorite sport are
various. Its favoritism is doubtless due to the time of the year at
which it is played most. The season begins with the winter months
and continues until springtime comes and invites us to outdoor sports. It is
during these cold days of winter when one cannot take outdoor exercise that
basket ball proves to be most interesting. And too, by the time the season be-
gins the players, most of them, are already well launched into the field of
Athletics and now at this point, their interest seems at the highest by having
taken part in the base ball season and fall tennis, which precedes Basket
Due to the fact that the college girls cannot exchange games \.ith other
colleges, most of the games are played among the girls here, However, the
girls have a varsity team which represents the Association in playing the teams
who wish to play us on our home floor. During the season the girls play three
public games, one between the old and the new girls; one with some outside
school, and the class championship game. These games always prove to be the
highest points of interest of the season. At the close of the season, "Gs" are
awarded those who meet the rules and regulations for such, laid down by the

r/ ^ \| HE Dalton E. Smith Post was organized by the members of the stu-
,^|^ dent body and faculty at Guilford who had belonged to the military
or naval forces of the United States during the World War, or who
had been a member of some of the various relief organizations that
engaged in war work. The name was chosen in memory of a former
student at Guilford who gave his life upon the battlefield in the
service of his country. There were others who gave their all in this same
service, a.ui it is a part of our purpose in organizing to do honor appropriately
to their memory.
Remembering the comradeships that were formed by each of us during
our period of service, we have joined together so that the ties of comradeship
might be renewed and strengthened, the memories of the past preserved, and
l.i- present welfare of our comrades and their families looked after. Thus
wc will be to some extent carrying on the ideals and friendships which were
ours while in service.

Come to Guilford
This invitation is extended to those young men and women
who wish to pursue their explorations into the realms of human
knowledge under conditions tliat are wholesome, healthful and
Guilford College is the oldest co-educational institution in
the south. The brotherhood and sisterhood relationships are
well established and are of a very pleasant and helpful nature.
In addition to a delightful student fellowship Guilford has
also worked out a very fine spirit of companionship and co-opera-
tion between the faculty and students. Many of the former live
in the dormitories or in Iiomes on the campus.
Guilford is classed as on "A" College by the State Board
of Examiners and maintains a higli standard of scholarship in
courses in the arts, sciences and literature.
The physical development and recreation of the students is
cared for by two physical directors, one for the men and one
for the women.
The spiritual and intellectual development is attended to by
a corps of carefully selected Cltristian men and women.
It is a real college
A well equipped college
A beautifully located college
